Gambling Issue, Not Opposition, Is Dead In State

Okay, I'm ready to let the people decide on casinos in Kentucky. Bring it on.

There is no support for casinos in the General Assembly. It is a dead issue.

Governor Fletcher deserves kudos for his strong opposition to this snake oil solution this summer. He probably would have scored more political points by opposing it so strenuously a little earlier in the game, but the issue is just as dead.

Steve Beshear needs to go on a "secretive investigation tour" in search of another issue.
